Joint parking initiative

The North Essex Parking Partnership is a partnership between Essex County Council and six district and borough councils in North Essex.

Colchester Borough Council leads the partnership and bring together all street-based parking services across North Essex on behalf of Essex County Council. This includes lines, signs, parking restrictions, on-street parking enforcement and the management of residential permit schemes.

Find out about the partnership on the North Essex Parking Partnership website.

We have a separate arrangement with the North Essex Parking Partnership for them to carry out:

  • ticket machine maintenance
  • parking permit/season ticket administration
  • parking enforcement in its Pay and Display car parks

The benefits of this include:

  • 3PR parking scheme to make parking around schools safer
  • MiPermit: 24/7 cashless parking
  • Safer roads with less congestion
  • fair, consistent and transparent parking enforcement process
  • provision and administration of on-street permit parking schemes
  • educational programmes that promote safe, considerate and legal parking
  • Parksafe camera cars, which focus on dangerous, careless or inconsiderate parking
  • removal of vehicles in certain circumstances
